Circa 1890 — 1940
The Tudor style that was popular in the early 1900s was based on the English medieval style of housing. The shape of the Tudor home was commonly a very steeply pitched roof with one or more cross gables that were equally pitched. It was the home’s wall cladding that distinguished the different forms in which the Tudor homes would have been built, the most popular being a brick masonry wall cladding. Other popular forms included a stone wall clad form, the stucco clad form, and the wooden clad form. Often Tudor style homes were built with a roof that gave the appearance of a thatched root and, in rare instances, a form with parapet gables.
The windows of Tudor homes generally tended to be tall and narrow casement windows that were often paired or grouped together. One of the most popular and widely used and recognized decorative feature of a Tudor home was the chimney. These chimneys were designed to be large and elaborate, placed in a central part of the house’s design, and were often built with patterned masonry.
